3 Signs a Face and Neck Lift May Be Right for You

From sun exposure to hormonal changes and genetics, the natural aging process reveals the evidence of facial aging and cosmetic neck concerns. Concerns like wrinkles, creases, and neck banding are a result of lax skin and lost volume.

And while face and neck lifts have been long associated with aging and older patients, there’s been a shifting trend towards younger demographics seeking these procedures. This paradigm shift underscores a broader cultural shift towards proactive self-care and a desire to maintain youthful aesthetics for longer periods.

“We’re seeing younger patients choosing more invasive surgeries at my practice,” Dr. Kamakshi R. Zeidler tells NewBeauty. “They want to invest in a procedure that carries a great result and that is more sustainable over time than some of the noninvasive techniques that may damage skin quality or need to be redone often.’

For many women and men, undergoing a facelift or a neck lift can be a life empowering decision. Here are three common signs to look for to determine if a facelift and neck lift may be right for you.

1. Hollow Cheeks

Hollow cheeks are common occurrences with an aging face. While dermal fillers provide some respite from sunken cheeks, the longest-lasting results come from a surgical facelift that repositions underlying fatty tissue back up to the cheeks.

2. Jowls

In our youth, taut muscle and underlying tissue give our facial features definition and contour. But over time this facial volume can drop and diminish. This results in a soft, undefined jawline or double chin. A neck lift repositions or removes excess neck skin and fat, revitalizing the neck to an elegant, long framing of the face.

3. Non-Invasive Treatments Are Less Effective

When you find your anti-aging regimen of non-surgical treatments is less effective, you may want to consider a surgical facelift. BOTOX®, dermal fillers, and laser treatments worked their magic for a while, but it’s now time to call in the big guns against an aging face and neck.

Because aging happens in stages, temporary solutions are acceptable in your 30s and possibly 40s. But when the years force underlying tissues to sag and droop, it’s time to address these severe changes with the multi-dimensional approach of a facelift and neck lift to create a naturally proportionate, and balanced outcome.

Complementary Procedures

While a facelift is an excellent facial aesthetic correction, it only deals with the midface. A neck lift will address problems like neck banding, turkey wattle, and double chin. But what about the forehead, nose, and eyes? Can you combine a facelift with other cosmetic surgeries to ensure a complete facial enhancement?

The answer is a resounding yes! Adding a brow lift, blepharoplasty, nose reshaping surgery, or even a laser treatment will help revitalize your facial appearance with a comprehensive surgical plan.
